THE WORK OF ANDRÉ GREEN
EXPANDING THE LIMITS OF PSYCHOANALYTIC THEORY AND TECHNIQUE
An online course by Howard Levine
For the recordings of the seminars visit the Participant's Lounge.
André Green was a brilliant thinker and innovative contributor to our field. The fire of his ideas ignited a passion for discovery in so many colleagues who knew him personally as analyst, supervisor and teacher or had heard his lectures or read his texts. He will be sorely missed, but his thoughts will continue to instruct and inspire.
Green was a leading voice in French psychoanalysis, one whose contributions sit at a crossroads, where the challenges posed and the opportunities presented by the work of Lacan, Klein, Winnicott and Bion meet the still generative insights of Freud, many of which Green reminds us have yet to be fully appreciated or developed. This course will attempt to convey to the audiance Green’s contributions and struggles to expand the reach of our theory and practice to patients whose difficulties lie beyond the spectrum of neurotic disturbances for which classical psychoanalysis was originally intended.
